[Archivesspace_Users_Group] External ID

AppConfig[:show_external_ids] = true 

will allow you to view and edit existing external ids in staff interface, but it doesn’t allow you to create them.
Ours are added either from EAD import or via backend API. 

I had once forked changes in an older version to  allow creating them from the staff webapp.
If I’m remembering correctly, the required changes touched too many modules and were not localized, so it didn’t seem practical to maintain them in a plugin.

If there is interest in adding this feature to the core code, I could review that branch and see if it could be merged into current code base. That code still followed that config setting, so edit option was not visible unless set to true.
